New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin spoke to the media before his book signing at a Manhattan Barnes and Noble today. Coughlin made it clear that Cruz’s contract situation is frustrating for him. “I like to think that I can control everything, and that I can have something to do with making sure that something gets done that I think would be beneficial to everyone,” Coughlin said, per the Newark Star-Ledger. “And certainly I believe that about Victor. We want Victor to be a Giant until the end of his career, but obviously he and his people, his agents, they’ve got to make that call. It’s a little bit frustrating in that you’d like to have it done, that’s all.” Some people will argue that Cruz is only a slot receiver, but he really broke out in 2011 as an outside receiver.  He had to learn how to play the slot in the middle of the year.  I believe he’s one of the best all-around receivers in the NFL and the Giants have to figure out a way to lock him up with a new deal.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
